The Weta Workshop guys built a Panzer IV awhile back. can't find much details on it, think it was a private commision they did.
Also apparently they are going to build a full sized running Tiger II as well for a movie Panzer 88 or something (horror movie)
"concept art for Panzer 88. This WWII creature feature is about a German tank fleeing across Russia from a mysterious entity. The film will be directed by Peter Briggs, and produced in New Zealand with effects by Peter Jackon’s WETA Workshop."
"Panzer follows “the five-man German crew of the Ilsa — a King Tiger, the biggest tank of its day — on a mission to the frigid and fearsome Russian border, where they tread into an ancient mystery by stirring a powerful entity.”
I imagine the Tiger 2 will be 1:1 replica with a running engine, with the body made out of lighter metals (mostly lots of aluminium) would be way to $ to make the sucker a full copy out of steel (70+ tons and all that)
